We've heard rumblings of a number of exciting new smartphones that will launch next year, with a new larger iPhone X successor likely drawing the most interest and appeal.

In a recent tweet, serial leaker Evan Blass said that Samsung isn't planning a big redesign for its Galaxy S9 and will instead deliver only a minor update. Well, it might be too early, but with Samsung said to be launching the Galaxy S9 lineup at the CES 2018 show in January, this leak might indeed be a real one.

Talking about the internals, the Galaxy S9 might be powered by Samsung's Exynos 9810 SoC and the Snapdragon 845 SoC. Qualcomm is expected to unveil the Samsung-made Snapdragon 845 SoC next month, which will replace the current high-end Snapdragon 835 SoC. Samsung is also expected to deliver a dual-lens camera in the device, according to Blass. We've also learned other things about the upcoming Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+.

The S9+ will feature a dual-camera system - similar to the one used on the Note 8 - arranged vertically so that the fingerprint sensor is at the bottom. This should address complaints about the Galaxy S8/S8+ and the Note 8 which most users found the fingerprint sensor to be quite awkwardly placed. The renders were created by a smartphone accessory maker called Ghostek, but they're based on information from the factory that is building Samsung's new flagship phones.

Let' speak about the render first.

All that info we've heard has now been confirmed by a separate source, which has managed to supply us with renders of the new Galaxy S9.

This is an incredible price for the state-of-the-art Samsung Galaxy S8.
